JCP&L: Majority Of Customers Will Be Restored In The Next 7 Days; Some Will Take An Additional 7 Days

FirstEnergy utilities says that they have restored service to more than 820,000 of the 2.2 million customers in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, and Maryland that were impacted by the devastating Hurricane Sandy, which swept through the region early this week.

“More than 14,100 linemen, hazard responders, forestry workers, call center representatives, management and support personnel are currently working around the clock to restore service to affected customers”, the company says. “The workforce includes approximately 11,200 from all 10 FirstEnergy utilities and support groups and nearly 2,900 contractors and other utility company personnel. Additional resources are expected as they become available”.

JCPL, a FirstEnergy company, says approximately 940,000 JCP&L customers remain without power following Hurricane Sandy.

The company says at the peak, more than 1 million of JCP&L’s 1.1 million customers were without power. Customers experienced more than 1.2 million interruptions as many customers who initially had power restored experienced multiple service interruptions.

“The majority of customers will be restored in the next seven days”, the company says. “Customers in the hardest-hit areas are expected to be restored in an additional seven days. Remaining customers will be restored once damaged roads, infrastructure and homes are rebuilt.” TLS.

  1. There is no good reason that the “low income” areas like clover and similiarly populated places are last to get their electricity back, while high income areas like … Are first to get it back.

  2. I live in a pretty expensive neighborhood and power has not been restored. I am sure there is no discrimination and they restoring the power in a logical manner.

  3. Why is it that, in walking or driving around Lakewood’s residential areas, you don’t see any JCP&L crews working on restoring the power to homes?
